Proposed Rules: Closed to Comments
The proposed rule implements the Department of Housing Preservation and Development’s authority pursuant to Zoning Resolution §23-96 to waive certain provisions of the Zoning Resolution. Specifically, Zoning Resolution §23-96(b), (c), and (d) authorize HPD to waive the requirements for height and horizontal distribution, the distribution requirements for bedroom mix, and the size requirements of affordable housing units, respectively, for substantial rehabilitation affordable housing on generating sites. HPD proposes to waive such requirements under one or more of the following circumstances: (1) there are tenants who are returning to such affordable housing units after rehabilitation is completed, (2) the building is the subject of an in rem tax lien foreclosure judgment for the City of New York, or (3) the building is owned by a housing development fund corporation or other entity designated by HPD.
